near damascus international airport. i should bear in mind, reuters reporting that two u.n. austrian peace-keepers were wounded, not life threateningly, but wounded near damascus airport. not clear by who. but that comes as reports of free syrian army rebels moving towards the airport within two kilometers, perhaps. emirates and egyptair cancelling flights until further notice, saying for the safety of the staff. and yesterday closed due to maintenance. something is certainly happening in that very significant airport to the east. that will be causing great tension in damascus. that link to the internet shut off and cell phones being down, as well. we can't tell. but certainly today for the first time i think in quite a number of weeks things are definitely changing on the ground of damascus and it looks like it's in the favor of the rebels. ashleigh? >> and i just want to be absolutely clear, you're coming to us from beirut at this moment, keeping a close eye. i know that our reporters who are based in lebanon next door to syria are trying at all times to get in and out of that coun

was in new york. he was in america for the u.n. general assembly in september and i think wanted to come down and meet the president. and wasn't invited or that didn't happen. and then, you recall when the -- when that film that scurrilous film was made and attacks on the embassy in cairo and he was not quick to condemn the attacks and president obama let him know that the alliance was actually in question over that. but they seem to have gotten along very well over the efforts to combined effort to end the gaza conflict and we're on the phone a lot and both sides say, you know, achieved some sort of rappaport. >> thank you very much. >>> and just in, we're getting word the army private accused of leaking secrets to wick leaks is right now on the stand testifying in his defense. that's next. in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been helping ideas move from ambition to achievement. and the next gr
? is it political? let's bring in our senior u.n. correspondent richard ross. this is an overwhelmingly vote and the united states voted against from elevating the palestinian authority and the state of palestine to this status, without question the united states is in the minority here. why? >> well, because the u.s. believes and has consistently believed for decades that only direct peace talks between israel and the palestinians can achieve a long lasting settlement. not through international organizations such as the united nations. though, the u.n. could eventually be helpful once there is a peace. the united states, canada, and very few others here voted in the negative. the palestinians didn't get all the european support they wanted. this morning actually canada is recalling some of its ambassa r ambassadors from new york and in the middle east for consultations probably for security reasons. canada gave a very public opposition speech before this vote. but the -- you mentioned is it symbolic, is it political, what are the significance -- what is it? it could be all of it, because n
that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and you know, we're after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have. and we will continue to provide information and we have got a full blown investigation. and all that information will be disgorged to congress. and i don't think there is any debate in this country that when you have four americans killed, that's a problem. and we got to get to the bottom of it and there noeeds to be accountability. we got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't get any debate from me on that. but when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve
. they won't let them go to the u.n. and declare statehood. they won't let them govern their own territory in the west bank. the wall that has been constructed and the roadblocks and checkpoints that exist in the settlements that are expand having undercut the legitimacy of that leadership. so what we have got is a situation that only gets worse and that's why the united states has to take a tougher stand. that's why we have to have those who can talk to the folks in hamas and gaza take a tougher position and ultimately bring an end to this. >> that's going to be the last word on that, mr. zogby. >> we're going to go down that road, open the door to hell, we saw it play out before in 2008 and '06 and many times before and ben wedeman is right, all we get is a lot of dead people and we start right back where we were with no peace and people still needing to talk to each other. >> james zogby, president of the arab-american institute. thank you for your time, sir. >>> back to the united states. we have a story developing now. two people now, two people are missing and two people are believed

rocked the west bank late into the night after the u.n. voted to declare palestinian territories a nonmember observer state. the only other entity to hold that position is the vatican, giving plichs reason to cheer but it also came as a huge disappointment to the united states, which had staunchly oppose this had measure, a sentiment echoed by israel. the vote was 138 in favor and nine opposed. u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice had very different reactions to the decision. >> translator: we came to a firm legitimacy of the state that must now achieve its independence and that is palestine. >> we have always been clear that only through direct negotiations between the parties can the palestinians and israelis achieve the peace that both deserve. >> palestinians view the u.n. vote as a big step toward eventual statehood. hours before the u.n. general assembly vote, u.n. put out a statement on its official twitter account. we all do that but theirs had a glaring typo. this says, quote, on day of solidarity with palestinians, ban ki moon stresses urgency of reaching a one-state
not feel that in her position as u.n. ambassador, u.s. ambassador to the u.n., going out on five sunday shows she asked the proper questions she needed to ask to make sure she was not misleading the american people about what happened in benghazi. she said that that how she feels coming out of the hour-long meeting she had, behind closed doors with susan rice. the second thing she's concerned about, she meaning senator ayotte, is that when susan rice was on these shows, she was very careful to read from the talking points that were unclassified, talking about extremist elements. she also went a step further in some interviews saying that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. what senator ayotte and other senators have said is that was misleading because she knew in a classified way that al qaeda might have been behind it. so that is what one -- two of the reasons why at least senator ayotte said that she is troubled. and she said that she is still not ready to say that she will vote for her. not only that, but she's still -- she still has a threat to block her nomination if s
the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice, who has been under a lot of criticism lately for the things she said after the benghazi attack in libya. and also with the top republican in the homeland security committee, senator susan collins of maine the republican from maine. we think that meeting might break up any minute while we're in this program live and if it does i'll interrupt what i am doing or about to do hopefully to have a few words with the good senator about how the meeting went. if it was anything like yesterday, ooh, didn't go so well with the senators she met with yesterday. so forgive me if i have to interrupt. i want to go back to the whole thing about office pools. i know a lot of you do this. you get in on these lotto winnings with your friends at work and if you actually win one of the big lotto pools with like oo other best friends at work you have what are you going to do? because one person has the ticket. right? sometimes they say oh, wait. that ticket? i bought that separately. i bought that one at home. that was from my private stash not from my pool. oh, well
administration's talking points, of course, especially from u.n. ambassador susan rice who has gotten a lot of heat since then in the days after the attack. let's listen. >> our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that, in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, no the a premeditated response to of what had transpired in cairo. >> so how did that happen? how was that accurate at the time? if we know that this was in fact a premeditated, not spontaneous occurrence? >> well, we don't know the degree it was premeditated. that's still something that's under investigation. how much advance planning was there or was this planned within 24 hours or the same day. so that's a question we still have to the get to the bottom of, but the important point in terms of the ambassador's statement on that sunday talk program is she was using the intelligence community's best estimate. at that time when she appeared on the sunday talk shows, the intelligence community still believed that that began as a protest, that, yes, there were terrorists and extremists involv
controversial coming out of these briefings, whether or not susan rice, the u.n. ambassador -- the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., had the proper information or was correct in what she said publicly about the attack being probably at that point four days after the attack because of a demonstration. democrats are really to a person coming to her defense aggressively and trying to explain why there was a discrepancy. listen to kent conrad of the democratic member of the senate health care community. >> what is very clear is that ambassador rice used the talking points that the intelligence committee had all signed off on. that is very, very clear. she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community, so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. that is very clear. >> and susan, dianne feinstein, just moments ago actually took out and read the unclassified talking points that susan rice used on that day, and they were very short. it sounds like there were two, maybe three points in the talking points, and it was almost certain to change.
their own state, of course, and a vote by the u.n. today could actually put them one step closer to getting it. there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low testosterone. androgel 1.62% is from the makers of the number one prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. it raises your testosterone levels, and... is concentrated, so you could use less gel. and with androgel 1.62%, you can save on your monthly prescription.

. the woman at center of the firestorm facing more questions. today u.n. ambassador to the u.s. susan rice met with republican senators who harshly criticized her initial ex-plan nation about the attack that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. what senator lindsey graham said after the meeting. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before, that the 16th september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think, does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> dana bash following developments on capitol hill. before susan rice went before these republicans, senators, they seemed to be backing away from criticizing her. now it looks like in speaking with them, this is backfired. can you tell us what happened? >> reporter: that's right. i was told by a source familiar with this meeting that the reason why the senators backed off public comments, softened them, they did, susan rice requested a meeting and felt that was the most appropriate thing to do not keep pounding her be
, that would be great. if they can work it out. i know the egyptians, the turks, ban kyi moon, u.n. secretary general, secretary hillary clinton, lot of people involved. it's still a 50/50 chance. israeli troops, armored units outside of gaza. they're waiting for a decision from the israeli government whether or not to go into gaza or not. if they go in, that would be obviously such a densely populated area, it would be a disaster for everyone concerned. but the israelis may decide to do it. my own sense is that they're close to a cease fire. let's see if they can achieve it. >> a word about hillary clinton. she will not be meeting with hamas. hamas is considered a terrorist organizations by the united states. might that change with this conflict? >> reporter: it would only change if hamas meets the long-standing conditions that the u.s. and european union -- i spoke with tony blair yesterday, representative of the u.s., european, united nations and russia, it would only change if hamas met the long-standing conditions, which are recognizing israel and agreeing to end violence and accepting a
negotiations that have gone nowhere. where does that stand? >> you know that quartet, the u.s., u.n., european union, russia, i met with tony blair yesterday here in jerusalem, and that peace process hadn't effect live gone anywhere since 2008. it's really been mired in a total collapse and a total mess. i'm not suggesting there's no hope it can be revived. it's going to take a lot of goodwill, maybe out of the crisis in gaza something positive can emerge, we shall see. there is no peace process for any practical purposes. george mitchell gave up 18 months or so ago when he dropped out of the obama administration, there hasn't been much. let's see what hillary clinton secretary of state can do when she meets with prime minister netanyahu and then meets with abbas and then talks with morsi. for all practical purposes for now that peace process is dormant. >> all right. wolf, thanks. we'll get back to you as soon as there's breaking news, obviously, if there's a deal or truce that comes out of it in the next couple of hour. israel says the talks are still going on. hamas is telling reuter they'v
january 2nd. >>> palestinians are hoping a u.n. vote later today will recognize them as a nonmember state in the general assembly. the move, which is mostly symbol symbolic, would bring legitimacy to their movement, but come without the support of israel or the united states. >> as for the rights of the jewish people in this land, i have a simple message for those gathered in the general assembly today. no decision by the u.n. can break the 4,000-year-old bond between the people of israel and the land of israel. >> the palestinians have had a permanent observer status at the u.n. since 1974, when the palestinian liberation organization oh was recognized as an observer, a position which is not defined in the u.n.'s charter. >>> and for the first time since the election, president barack obama and governor mitt romney will meet. they're going to have lunch at the white house. before that happens, romney will meet with his former running mate, congressman paul ryan. >>> former baltimore orioles doug de census is indicted on insider trading. money laundering for a stock sale in 2008. the feds

. egypt has been working to reinstate a cease-fire. u.n. secretary-general ban ki-moon will arrive in cairo for talks tomorrow and arab league foreign ministers are set to visit gaza on tuesday. but both israelis and palestinians say the solution must come from the other side. >> we are trying to drive home the message to hamas that they cannot shoot at israeli civilians, try to kill israeli civilians with impunity and we've been able to reduce to a remarkable extent the amount of civilian casualties on their side. compare that to what hamas is doing to us. they're trying to maximize the number of israeli civilians they kill. that's the difference between a terrorist organization and a democratic country. >> i think, the ambassador knows that it was israel who provoked hamas by taking arms with one of the commanders on wednesday. they knew that hamas and other actions in the gaza strip would retaliate, so they also are to be blamed for this escalation in the violence between the gaza strip and israel. it's time for the united states and the international community to force and pres
prime minister benjamin netanyahu here in jerusalem. the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon, by the way, is making these rounds as well. that
authority going to the u.n. to ask for nonmember states status for the palestinian authority for palestine, i think instead of looking upon all of this in a negative way, we should build on it. >> and then we're looking at pictures that involve egypt's president mohammed morsy. how do you see his role here? earlier in the week it was considered that he played a very strong leadership role here. he used his leverage as well. but then now with the power grab that he is entertaining in egypt days after helping to broker this cease-fire, is his role now being looked at or assessed differently? >> no. i think what we have to look at is president morsy's international role. he played a critical role and he played a positive role as being a very valid person between hamas and the israelis. i mean you had an israeli delegation in cairo working out this deal under egyptian egis. i think morsy played a positive role in helping gain the cease-fire. so that, i think, is one part of morsy. the other part of morsy is as the first brother muslimhood in egypt, he has a domestic agenda. his domestic agenda
fascinating, his old cohort, cofounder of the plo with yasser arafat, mahmoud abbas is going to the u.n. this week to ask for nonmember -- official status for a palestinian state, and, you know, i knew arafat pretty well. i think i could honestly say that if they were to get a state, even nonmember status, unofficial, at the u.n., yasser arafat wouldn't mind being above ground for that. >> oh, boy. >> there's no other way to look at it. >> above ground. it will be -- absolutely. we're going to learn more details about that tomorrow. jim, thanks, as always, for your insights. appreciate it. >> great to be with you. >>> disturbing reminder of the ravages of war. activists in syria say a cluster bomb, this one was dropped on a playground. we're going to get a live report.

me. she's the one that asked for the meeting. i didn't. >> don't think so. the embattled u.n. ambassador is sitting down with the senator who accused her of being incompetent and deceptive and called for watergate style hearings on libya. >> she gave deceptive information to the american people when there was clearly counter information that affirmed that this was a terrorist attack orchestrated by an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> by now you know the story. rice intimated a cheesy anti-islam film caused the murderous rampage at the consulate in benghazi, libya. not true. her assertion on several sunday talk shows was okayed by the intelligence community and caused one great big partisan brawl. soon, democrats piled on, accusing republicans of racism. >> susan rice's comments didn't send us to iraq and afghanistan. somebody else's did. but you're not angry with them. i would just say in closing that it is a shame that any time something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities. i have a real issue with that. >> yet when asked about mccain, rice was conciliatory. >>
onion" as if it was a real news story. made north korea's kim jong un the sexiest man aloiv. it seems that china's news agency missed the punch line. come on, zain verjee. really? >> finally, kim jong un, the sexiest man alive. as i like to call him kim jong un. here is why i think that. i find him devastatingly handsome. round face, boyish charm, strong, sturdy frame. heartthrob is every woman's dream come true. this is the onion, okay? impeccable fashion sense, chic, short hairstyle and, of course, that famous smile. you know the one i'm talking about. right, carol? >> oh, yeah. >> anyway, the people's daily online picked the story up. they thought it was for real. they thought it was serious. they missed this whole little thing called satire and printed it as a real story. onion saying, yay, we fooled china and china saying how dare they do that? they pulled the story because they got it wrong. what do you think of him? >> i don't think he's the sexiest man alive, i'll put it that way. did the chinese people have a chance to respond? >> they did. someone from the online -- people's
there between israel and hamas had nothing to do with yesterday's vote at the u.n. where mahmoud abbas won his bid for the upgrade here. here's how the vote came down. >> the voting has been completed. please log the machine. 138 countries voted yes, and there were only nine no's. you and i have been talking about this the last couple of days anticipating that this was going to happen here. this was a big blow to the united states and israel that warned, look, don't go there, don't do this, and we heard from the ambassador, u.s. ambassador to u.n. susan rice immediately after the vote. i want you to see what she said. >> today's unfortunate and counter productive resolution places further obstacles in the path to peace. that is where the united states voted against it. today's grand pronouncements will soon fade, and the palestinian people will wake up tomorrow and find that little about their lives has changed. >> how is it all these other countries, how is it that the -- the united states got it right here? >> mrs. rice is correct. ms. rice is correct, and in terms of -- it's not going to be
in the second term. and that is the case this time around, widely expected that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice going to be secretary of state, that could be a very ugly confirmation hearing. and senator john kerry talked about as defense secretary, wolf? >> yeah, there's been reports that john kerry, who i always assumed wanted to be secretary of state could be the next secretary of defense leon panetta has made it clear he's ready to move on and go back to california after all these years in washington, former cia director, now the secretary of defense. i don't know how long that will last. but if kerry is nominated to be the secretary of defense, that does leave hillary clinton's job at the state department open. and susan rice was always -- at least i always believed she was the front-runner until those controversial comments she made about the benghazi killing of the u.s. ambassador and three other americans on those five sunday talk shows. and the republicans really have been going after her. and if the president stands firm and nominates her to be the next secretary of state,
after he briefed congress on september 14th well after u.n. ambassador susan rice made her comment. there was a lot of murkiness and a moving train if you will. >> thank you. also something to consider as well, to that end we'll speak with general spider marks later on in the program to see what his take is to piece together information when you do have something like a war zone developing. that's coming up ahead. a whole lot more from the white house all in a moment. you know, i was once used for small jobs. yeah, and i took on all the bigger, tougher ones. but now that mr. clean's got this new select-a-size magic eraser, i mean, he can take on any size job. look how easily he gets things cleaned. it's enough to make you cry. you, specifically. not me. i'm just happy we don't go near rex's mobile home as often. because it's hard to clean or because you're scared of an itty-bitty doggy?

negotiations is if they get elevated status at the u.n. that's why we saw mahmoud abbas in europe this week trying to persuade them for support. the palestinians say, we're getting nowhere. they just announced another 1200 homes to be built in east jerusalem. >> when we're looking, we're talking about roberts going from here -- >> all the way to here. >> when we say it went towards tel-aviv but went in the walter, this is why p. thf these are not missiles. in other words, they're not putting a grild and target and firing it with accuracy. they're rockets. >> how far are we talking here? >> you're talking more than 40 kilometers and they're aiming to increase the range even more. they're getting this technology from the ukraine and from russia. they have palestinians have studied at the universities there. they've taken this technology home. this is widespread grad rocket technology. >> this becomes a ground war, i asked ben the same question, this changes how? >> it changes in terms of civilian casualties. it's unavoidable if you put that much firepower in there. >> jim clancy, thank you ve
